Career opportunities are abundant in Northeast Ohio, and our academic advisors are passionate about helping you align your talents, work experience, credits earned, and interests to design a pathway to your dream job.
We’ve been building partnerships with local employers for decades, and these relationships have:
- Developed academic programs that directly align with industry needs
- Created earn-and-learn opportunities for LCCC students
- Strengthened pathways for local apprentices to earn degrees
Start with these in-demand fields
Consider a career in high-opportunity sectors within Northeast Ohio including manufacturing, IT/ information services and healthcare (Northeast Ohio Key Industries, Team NEO). Or you may want to serve others as a first responder or teacher. There are lots of ways to combine these pathways with other LCCC programs to design your next step.

We can help you combine classes you’ve already taken, give you credit for your work and life experience, and customize a plan to get you to your degree. Meet with an advisor to design your career.
1. Start with your college credits
If you already have some college credit, we’ll combine all of your past college courses, AP credits, and transfer credits.
